IT'S official -- Cork is full of Wallys.
A new Guinness World Record was set yesterday when 2,563 men, women and children, donned the red-and-white striped Wally costumes beloved of schoolchildren worldwide.
The previous world record had stood at 1,052 Wallys in one place at the same time. The 'Where's Wally' bid formed part of the Cork Midsummer Festival with all the proceeds from the event going to local charities.
